FIDELIS JOSEPH


Born in Adamawa, Nigeria (1989)..

Fidelis Joseph’s painting practice fuses his life experiences in Nigeria and the U.S. Moving from figuration to abstraction, he evades straight-line narratives, focusing instead on complex impressions and emotions embedded in the human psyche. Uncanny figures emerge from landscapes of bright color blocks, transparent paint and bare canvas. His rapid and energetic brushstrokes bring palpable tension.
